    Looks like silver appleyard, but hard to be definite with just the one back pic. Is the head fawn colored or is that shadow?

    Thanx, without being in natural light I can't be 100% but pretty sure it's a silver appleyard. You can go online and look at pics of them since you know what she looks like in person...The only reason I question is that Welsh Harlequin are similar but usually have dark bills, which is why I'm going with silver appleyard...They have lighter bills than Harlequin...Check em both out and see what ya think. :)

    Any idea what this little one is? The bill is a greenish color and s/he has silver streaks in feathers down the back. 20170507_150808.jpg

    Would need a pic of your ducks feet and back. If ya can get one. I know they arent much for standing still or posing for pics...And green tint to a light ducks bill usually indicates you got yourself a boy. Love the crest by the way. From what I can tell in pic yours has brown tint to feet instead of being orange. How old is your duck?

    She looks like mine! Mine are white appleyards (which they are not supposed to be, but sometimes they are very white....something to do with the pekin ancestry I think)
